Knit a Chick 2016

Knit a Chick for 2016

Across Knitted chicks for Francis HouseEach year we appeal to supporters to send in little knitted chicks that can cover chocolate eggs and be sold across Manchester to raise funds for the hospice.  More than 8,250 knitted chicks were sold in 2015 raising a staggering £11,133; the highest amount raised since the appeal began.  For Easter 2016 we are inviting knitters to get creative with colour and send in unique chicks with plenty of personality!  For more information please contact
